Aka covid fatigue…Can we add that to the urban dictionary?
I admit that being so isolated has impacted my daily life. I miss church and church events. I miss volunteering at local events and charities. And I so miss visiting with my son and grandson.
Plus masks make my nose itch.
While I’m grateful that my family, artwork, home, and my sewing hobby keep me somewhere above the depressed line, I do have my difficult days. I was totally grumpy yesterday! and actually took a second anti-depressant in the afternoon (something that is OK’d, my dosage is very very low).
Something that doesn’t change is attention to my health. While it’s a bit weird to go to the hospital and wait in the parking lot for an escort, I just keep on keeping on. I guess this post is a bit of a reminder. Things get a bit graphic after this…
I had a positive result on a Cologuard test, had a colonoscopy, lots of polyps, several neoplastic. It left me horribly constipated and my doctor is working with me on that. I need to get that gastric muscle moving. And of course I have followup appointments. Seeing doctors has become a social event for me 🙂
I’ve had multiple chest CT’s (for a mycobacterial lung infection) and carotid sonograms. Things get clogged. I’ve started new meds that cost a small fortune for my lungs and arteries. But, what the heck, I’ll live longer.
My hospital clinic, incredibly, does not have the senior high-dose flu shot, it’s in high demand, so I went to my pharmacy today to get it. And the first of 2 injections for shingles. The latter is something I do not want to have. With my scleroderma, the herpetic nerve damage from shingles could be devastating.
Starting another med for cholesterol. After 4 years on a DASH diet, I need some help. It is expensive!! even at the lowest dose possible.
Skip this if sqeemish…
At my age I’ve been experiencing some bladder leakage at night while sleeping. It left me with a diaper rash! I’m now using Poise liners and a prescription cream from my lovely doctor.
Next steps – I’m going to take some pics, no makeup or hair fix, just to get back in touch. I’ve sewn some delightful garments and want to share them.
How are you guys doing? for now – Coco 🙂
